USA, died in 1833 in Pulaski, Georgia about age 42, and was buried in McAllister

Cemetery, Dodge, Georgia, USA.

General Notes: My Notes:

In searching SC censuses, I noticed that in the late 1700's there were few mcallisters,

and according to CMA website there were 13 Mcallister families in 1790 in SC.

In 1790, in the Williamsburg area:

John McAllister (males - 1 over 16, 4 under 16),

Charles (males - 2 over 16, 1 under 16).

In 1800 - Williamsburg area:

John (Males - 2 under 10, 3 btwn 17 - 26, 1 btwn

27 - 45)

John Jr. (Males - 1 btwn 17 - 26, no children)

Charles (Males - 1 btwn 17 - 26, no children)

William (Males - 1 btwn 11 - 16, 1 btwn 17 - 26, 1 btwn 27 -

45)

1810 Williamsburg:

Cathrine (Males - 1 btwn 11 - 17, 1 btwn 17 - 25), pg 606

John (Males - 3 under 10, 1 btwn 26 - 45), pg 606

William (Males - 4 under 10, 1 btwn 10 - 26, 1 btwn 26 - 45),

pg 608

Charles (Males - 1 under 10, 1 btwn 26 - 45), pg 609

1820 Williamsburg:

Note: in 1820 all listed side by side as neighbors in the census.

William and son Wm Jr. (Males - 1 under 10, 1 btwn 18 - 25, 2 older than 45)

If Charles was born in 1791, during the census years he would be:

1800 - 9yo (Under 10)

1810 - 19yo (btwn 17 - 25)

1820 - 29yo (btwn 26 - 45)

in 1810, Charles had 1 male child

In 1820, Charles is listed as a Sr. with 5 male children under 10 yo.

Charles married Elizabeth GRAHAM, daughter of Hugh GRAHAM and Sevil

HEATH, before 1813. Elizabeth was born about 1780 in Williamsburg, South Carolina,

USA and died after 1826 in Pulaski, Georgia. They had four children: Hugh Gaskins,

Charles W., Elizabeth, and Davis N..

3-Hugh Gaskins McALLISTER Sr.

was born in 1813 in Williamsburg, South

Carolina, USA, died after 7 Jun 1880 in

Dothan, Geneva County, Alabama, USA,

and was buried in Smith Family Cemetery,

Houston County, Alabama, USA. Another

name for Hugh Gaskins was Hugh Gaston

McALLISTER Sr.

General Notes: My Notes on Hugh, Sr's

parents:

I have found and confirmed much of the info back to Hugh G McAllister Sr.

but could find no info on his parents due to many records being destroyed in SC,

during the Revolution and Civil Wars.

I have been searching for him as Hugh "Gaston", due to his son Hugh Jr. being

identified as Gaston in message boards and due to later descendants being

named Gaston. I now feel this has been mis-spelled or just wrong, and I'll

explain why later.

I found a message on Genforum's "Mcallister" forum, titled :

"McCallister / McAllister born SC 1813/14+/-" dated 2002.

In this post, this person speculated that Hugh G. may be the son of a Charles

and Elizabeth McAllister; with Elizabeth being the daughter of a Hugh Graham

and his wife Sevil. After reading this I set out to find information to prove or

disprove this speculation. I searched the census records and searched for the

will spoken of in the post.

I located the Will of Hugh Graham at the Museum of History and Archives of

South Carolina and downloaded a copy.

In Searching the census transcripts of Williamsburg, S.C. where the will was

filed, I also noticed the name of another family that proved to be helpful. As I

researched the Williamsburg censuses, I noticed that near each McAllister or

Graham family was a family named Gaskin. I wondered if rather than Hugh

"Gaston" could this have been mis-spelled or, due to a Scottish verbal accent,

mis-pronounced and was really "Gaskin" - and not Gaston.

Back at the Museum of History and Archives of SC, I located a will of an

Ezekel Gaskins, from Kershaw, SC and downloaded a copy.

In this will, Ezekel Gaskins leaves 5 schillings to each of his children. The first

of which is a Cathrin Maccullaster.

I searched censuses and archives in SC for Catherine McAllister / Gaskins

and found one that was married to John McAllister in Williamsburg and in the

Familysearch IGI found that the names of her children included several names

that were given to descendants that I have already verified both in Houston

County, Alabama, Georgia and SC. These included 1 named Charles that was

born in SC.

In John's Will (also from SC Archives), he mentions a son named Charles.

During this peroid, I found 2 Charles:

1 was shown as btwn 26 - 45 in the 1790 Williamsburg, SC Census.

(Same age as John)

The other was between 17 and 26 in 1820 who was born in

Williamsburg and is shown with young children in the 1820 census

(I believe this is the father of Hugh G. Sr.)

In searching SC censuses, I noticed that in the late 1700's there were few

mcallisters, and according to CMA website there were 13 Mcallister families.

Noting these facts, I concluded that this is the one that is spoken of in the

Forum.

Through all of my research, and the facts I have collected, it is my belief that:

John Mcallister (b. 1752) married Cathrine Gaskins (b.1756 - daughter of Ezekel

Gaskins and either his 1st wife, unknown, or his 2nd wife Talitha) and had a

child named

Charles McAllister (b. 1791) who married Elizabeth Graham (abt 1790 -

daughter of Hugh and Sevil Graham)

Who had a child named

Hugh (b. 1813, Williamsburg SC - and believed to be Hugh Gaston or Gaskin

McAllister b. 1813)

My Notes about Land dispute / Name change:

While speaking with Keith Seagle, and John Earl Smith, both discussed

the possibility of a land dispute that may have lead to family members changing

the spelling of their name. In Keith's notes that he e-mailed to me in 2008, there

was mention of Hugh G. having a 2nd wife after Sarah's death. I then searched

thru the Geneva County, Alabama 1880 census and found "G. Hugh McAlister

(66yo) with a wife A.E. Mary (20yo), and sister -in- law, Sarah Armstrong,

living 2 houses down from Andrew Vincent. I have not been able to find any

Armstrong in Dale, Geneva, Henry and Wakulla, FL counties before 1880, and

no record of A. E. Mary McAlister (of any spelling) born in 1860, in any later

censuses in Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Wakulla, Jackson, and Holmes

counties.

However, if Hugh (66) married a 20 year old (20 years younger than his

kids), only a year after Sarah's death, this may have caused hard feelings, and/or

a dispute over Hugh's estate, between his children and his 2nd wife.

Noted events in his life were:

1. Charles and Hugh obtained a marriage license in 1833 in Telfair, Georgia,

USA.

2. He had a residence in 1837 in Hawkinsville, Pulaski, Georgia, USA. where

Son Hugh Jr. was born. (My assumption) There is a McAllister Cemetery

in Dodge county, Ga - in an area that was once part of both Telfair, and

Pulaski counties. I assume this was their land.

McAlister Cemetery is a Cemetery in the state of Georgia (county of

Dodge), located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also known as lat-long

or GPS coordinates) of N 32.22097 and W -83.33428. McAlister Cemetery

is shown in the center of the topographic (topo) map, which is sourced from

the United States Geographical Survey map USGS West of Eastman quad.

8. He was buried in Merritts Crossroads, Houston, Alabama, USA. Although

Sarah D Gregory McAllister.

During the trip to the cemetery, we noticed that there was an open space

near the stone for Sarah D. It looks as though there may be a grave there

and someone has placed a cinder block at the place that the headstone would

be. Since there is no other known grave, and most other family were buried

near there in New Providence Cemetary, it would not be unreasonable to

assume that Hugh G. Sr. was buried next to Sarah.

Hugh Gaskins married Sarah D.

Alabama, go west approximately 2/10ths of a mile. The Smith Family

cemetery is on the south side of New Hope Road. There is no sign, but the

tombstones abut the road right of way and are easily visible. This cemetery

is not being maintained and is overgrown with brush. There is one shattered,

illegible tombstone and 5 flat concrete grave covers with no legible

inscription. Graves marked with metal funeral home markers are noted as

these markers often do not survive for a long time. The cemetery area,

General Notes: There is a family

legend:

This story was told to me when I

was in gradeschool, while writing a

report about our family name. It has

been repeated by my father and

Grandfather several times since.

According to my father (Howard

Lawrence) and Grandfather

(Howard Shelton) our family once

spelled their name McA(llister).

During the move to Georgia or soon thereafter, one of our Grandfathers

stole a horse. In order to keep from getting caught, he changed the

spelling of his last name to the McC. spelling.

Noticing the military and census records, all ancestors spelled their name

as McA. until we find the gravestone of Sarah D. (Gregory) McAllister.

Because Hugh G. Jr used the McC. spelling on his gravestone, and this is

the first usage of the McC. spelling in our family line, I assume that Hugh

G. Jr. is the person this story is told about.

Interview with John Earl Smith:

I asked about the changing of the spelling of the name, he said he had

no proof, but had heard the story about the horse thief from his

grandparents. He said that with the story coming down 2 lines and on

opposite sides of the county, and opposite sides of the family, that he felt it

was either true or partly true.

He said that the only other explanation that he had was that maybe his

"Uncle J. S." (James Shelton) had it changed during the war by mistake

and just stuck with it.

Noted events in his life were:

1. Birth: Note, 28 Sep 1837, Hawkinsville, Pulaski, Georgia, USA.

According to 1880 Geneva Co. Alabama census, birthplace is Florida.

According to 1900 Geneva Co, Al census, birthplace is Georgia.

Military service record confirms that he was born in Hawkinsville,

Pulaski, Ga.

I remember her being a stern, forceful woman, maybe it was

because she was getting up in years, or maybe because we were

just children, but she was strict, no playing around with her."

General Notes:

Notes from Keith's conversation with Jack (Dec 28,

2005 after Lennie's and Donald's funeral) about his

WWII experience. I looked up unit history, and the

dates and places fit with Jack's recollection.

Jack Wilmar Smith in WWII

35th fighter group. Jack said he was a Chemical

warfare specialist, said "we kept thinking the Japs were

going to use chemicals, so we were getting ready, but

we never used them."

Trained at Kessler (army air corps?) base in Miss.

Then to shipped Australia then to New Guinea for over

a year, then 'they moved us to Okinawa" where he was

till the end of the war (sept 45)

Jack said he was then shipped home to Vancouver,

Canada, then Eugene, Oregon then back to Kessler,

Miss. Where he found out he had Malaria. All the time

in the pacific, he never got malaria, but must have right

at the end b/c it was diagnosed as soon as he got back

stateside.

While recovering in the Kessler hospital, a friend told

him he was going to U fo A and said, 'come go with

me' Jack replied he didn't have any money to go to

college and the friend told him about he GI Bill where

he could go to college and get paid ($45 per month?).

in New Guinea thought that was "a heck of a deal" and

went to U of A in 1946.

Jack continued on thru Law school and was admitted to

the Alabama bar February 9, 1953
